In East Asian Buddhism, Guanyin is the bodhisattva of compassion and kindness, and means “Observing the Sounds of the World”. She encourages a path of wisdom and service, and offers safe passage to the traveller.
“Noat designs paper goods and curio for those seeking a quiet sense of cosmopolitan style. An austere mysticism and modernist perspective are whispered through simple pleasures that deepen senses. Our greeting cards, stationery, art prints, fragrances and incense embody still reflection and a spirit of mystery.”
